Living on your own provides you with the freedom to set your own schedule, follow your own routine, and determine what you’ll do each and every day. Living on your own with a disability, such as blindness, may seem restricting, but many people are able to arrange their homes and their lives to accommodate their disability. Those who have vision issues are capable of living normal, healthy lives, but if their financial security is in jeopardy, First Support is here to help. Our disability tax credit support professionals can guide any eligible person through the application and submission process.
According to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), legal blindness is defined as vision that is “worse than or equal to 20/200 with best correction in the better eye or a visual field extent of less than 20 degrees in diameter.” A person with visual acuity worse than 20/50 is not allowed to obtain a driver’s license, which can severely limit their freedom and cause them to be reliant on others for transportation. Some people may be restricted to driving during the day, but this still limits their freedom.
If you or a loved one has a vision disability, or are considered legally blind, please contact us right away to discuss your tax credit status. Our expert teams understands the application process, and will help you increase your chances for approval. You deserve to live the life you want, without the restrictions of financial instability.
